we watched Iron Lady on sunday. well, some of it. we gave it up within less than an hour. the constant time shift was just too annoying. that and the fact we both new it wouldn’t have a happy ending. the bitch is still alive


saturday was different. saturday we watched a cracking film.


The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. a british film about a group of retirees who have the chance to stay in the aforementioned hotel. Maggie Smith, Judi Dench (two dames for the price of one) Tom Wilkinson, Bill Nighy to name a few were the stars. and acted it perfectly. a gentle combination of the right amount of pathos and humour. i don’t know how this film slipped me by for so long. loved it. 10/10.

and so to next week. we’re off to the flicks this time. twice in a fortnight for me after taking The Boy to see The Hobbit (a tale for another day). i’m taking The Enemy to see this!


and i am really looking forward to it. full report will follow sunday.




  1. I agree the most exotic marigold hotel was brilliant really enjoyed it and would recommend anyone to see it. As for le mis.. cannot wait. Seen the stage version in west end twice and once in manchester so hopefully (and if reviews and trailers are correct) the film won’t spoil what is one of my favourite musicals
